The newly formed Festival String Quartet launched the 17th annual Seal Beach Chamber Music Festival with vigor Tuesday at the McGaugh School auditorium, and the festival may have obligingly returned the favor. The quartet was brought in--at the 11th hour, one suspects--to take the place of the originally announced Southwest Chamber Music Society, which, according to festival founder Alan Parker, had to withdraw because of a recording commitment.

Their name means, roughly, "the extravagance" or "oddity," but there wasn't anything particularly extravagant or odd in the way the three members of La Stravaganza performed Thursday at the McGaugh School in Seal Beach. Their program stands out, however, in the flyer describing the nine-concert (this being number five) Seal Beach Chamber Music Festival: It is the only program of Baroque music.

This month marks the 150th anniversary of Norwegian composer Edvard Grieg's birth. But there are very few local events that will mark it. One of those is the modest Seal Beach Chamber Music Festival, which opens Thursday at the McGaugh School Auditorium. Founder and cellist Alan Parker has programmed music by Grieg on four of the eight free concerts, which run weekly through Aug. 12.
